Brad Zehring Brad Zehring, DO

Dr. Brad Zehring knew he wanted to be a physician since he was a little kid though he didn’t know he wanted to be a psychiatrist until he saw how those with mental illness were marginalized. In addition, through his experiences with his wife who has struggled with an eating disorder and a mood disorder – he has shifted his focus to helping those with eating disorders as well.

His passion for mental illness and eating disorders drives his learning and discovery and he wants to challenge the status quo that society has on these issues. He wants to create a platform where he can bring these issues to the public, perhaps for the first time.

Brad went to medical school at Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and started his residency at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ, where he currently helps others with their journey to wellness.

Brad is a HUGE Notre Dame Fighting Irish fan. He follows recruiting, winter conditioning, spring ball and, of course, he is glued to the TV every Saturday in the fall riding the wave of emotions that is Notre Dame football.

Brad has been married for 7 years to his beautiful wife, Holli.  Together they are raising two children; their daughter Anna who is 5 years old and Drew who is 2 years old.

Dr. Zehring’s family and Jesus are the most important things in his life.
